The link to this tool in the Illustration software and the eApp Illustrations has been temporarily disabled. If you currently click on this link, you will receive an error page. Thrivent hopes to have this functionality restored before the end of the month.
Policy Issue Age – Clarification
To ensure that the issue age of an approved LTC policy for a client with a recent birthday is that of the younger age, an application must be dated and submitted to Thrivent within 30 days of the birthday.
- For example, if a client had a birthday of 06/30 and application must be dated and received at Thrivent before 07/29 to ensure that an approved policy is issued with the younger age.
Effective immediately, Wisconsin has been added as a pre-appointment state. The states that now require pre-appointment with Thrivent are GA, PA and WI. Updated appointment forms are in process and will be made available as soon as possible. In the meantime, the current appointment forms can continue to be used.
